I believe a report on "chronic exposure to n-hexane may cause nerve damage in auto repair technicians" appeared in the CDC's Mortality and Morbidity Weekly Report on November 16, 2001 (MMWR, 50.45: 1011-1013, 2001)..  This is perhaps what you are referring to.

Subject: [DCHAS-L] Workplace Hexane exposures

I recall seeing a fairly concise article that provided an overview of the impacts of hexane exposures to auto mechanics in California in the mid-1990's, when the products they used were reformulated to reduce their VOC contents. I'd like to share this article with industrial hygiene students here, but haven't been able to find it quickly. Does anyone know where I can find it?

Thanks for any help with this.
